Thanks for uploading this. I saw it many years ago and it was always in the back of my mind as a fine little half-hour tale. Always enjoy seeing Edmond O'Brien, one of my favorite actors in movies and tv shows of the '50s.

The Star and the Story reminds me a bit of Star Performance. Both fine half-hour anthology shows from a time era when television was worthwhile.
